Cards' magic number down to 2
Lefty struggles in last start
For four innings, Chris Capuano was solid, but it was the fifth inning that hurt him. In his last start of '06, the lefty gave up eight runs, five in the fifth, which proved to be too much for the Brewers to overcome. Milwaukee scored four of its five runs on homers by Corey Hart, Prince Fielder and Bill Hall.

Weaver weaves solid outing
The Cardinals' magic number to clinch the NL Central is now down to 2 after St. Louis beat Milwaukee and Houston lost to Atlanta. This was made possible by Jeff Weaver's solid outing, plus two big homers by left fielder Preston Wilson and slugger Albert Pujols.
